A bar fridge along with movable seating ensure that the outdoor living area is as complete as possible even while adapting to varying needs. Transition between the interior and the outdoors is almost seamless with form and function being combined in an effortless contemporary fashion. A great way to enjoy warm days and lazy summer evenings even while staying sheltered from direct sunlight
